I need to transfer 4 fish from my 55g tank to my new 90 gallon setup. What would everyone recommend as the best procedure. I manage both tanks, some of the water from the 55 has been used in the 90...
What would be the best procedure for transporting LR from an established tank (2 year) to my established tank (11 months)
I have always used the API NO3 test kit.
The one thing that is making me second guess the results is that I have read that if you don't follow the instructions specifically the readings may be...
Thanks for the response
All approx 2"
Approx 30# live rock (realize not enough for 55g)
Substrate is crushed coral. I...
I have a 55g FOWLR tank. My nitrate level has been 5-10ppm for the 10 months I have been running. My last test at 10 was 12/22. Ammonia and Nitrite are 0. Yesterday and today the nitrates are roughly...
Two totally unrelated questions:
1. Do some types of equipment (filters, skimmers, etc...) cause faster water evaporation ?
2. Is there anyway to tell if a clownfish is tank bred vs wild ? I...
I wanted to tell you guys that I lucked out today. A local shop that I have dealt with in the past is moving his operation and I happened to catch him in the move. He has been in the business for...
If I do find live rock inexpensive enough, how do I know if it is safe for my tank. Would you suggest cycling it regardless ?
Dry rock seems a safer bet but...
It looks like marcorocks still recommends cycling their dry rock. I have a 10 gallon tank that I am not using. If I put the dry rock in to it with a small amout of live rock and than monitored the...
Thanks again. Great section on an economical aquarium.
So if I understand correctly, I would put 40-50# of dry rock in my tank. I would need some live rock to seed the dry. This method should...
Thanks, you guys are awesome. Where would I usually find "dry rock" for sale?
I will check out the section you recommended.
Penguin 330 hang on filter--additional power head--protein skimmer.
I do have rock that has been in the tank for 7 months. Does it ever become live rock ? Is it necessary to have a full 50-60#...
No live rock or corals
I have a 55 gallon tank that has been up and running since February. I do not want too many fish and would like a suggestion for my next one. I currently have a maroon clown, a coral beauty, and a...
I've been dealing with a red slime problem in my 55g tank. I used a product called chemiclear which did a pretty good job of clearing out the majority of the slime. The local store suggested that...
Thanks for the advice. The 3 fish are:
Wouldn't the rock from craigslist or classifieds be a pretty high risk ?
It sounds like just the powerheads...
Thanks so much. I've read numerous postings here from you and you are extremely helpful. At $8-10 per pound I would need to add rock slowly. I have 3 fish and the tank has been running for 8...
Sticky: Live Rock / Filter advice
I went to a local shop and spoke to a very helpful and knowledgeable guy about live rock. He suggested that I could add live rock to my tank with no concern for negative effects. His suggestion for...
Sticky: New Live Rock
Not sure if this is the best place to post this question but since you mentioned live rock.........My 55g has been up and running for 8 months and seems stable for now. I have 3 fish - Maroon Clown,...
I have a 55 gallon aquarium and I am thinking of putting together a quarentine tank but I am not sure how necessary it is. I have a 10 gallon tank. Is it better to start from scratch or to use...
